    Great sign that Whose Line gained in demo and viewers at the second airing. I yhink the show will maintain ratings and not drop at all. CW technically beat Abc and NBC with the 8/830 combo of 1.1/1.2 so good for the CW.

    I Hope Captured is a good reality show, formerly the hunt I will give this a shot as well.

    Looks like The CW finally found their niche – resurrecting fan-favorite cult shows that were cancelled by the big nets. And I’m not even kidding. This area could potentially be a big draw for them. At the least, I’m hoping this shows them that they need to stop with the niche genre shows. Shows like Whose Line bring in the larger broad audience that they should’ve begun reaching years ago. As others have said, people will watch CW if they put out something that people actually want to watch.

    Whose Line did amazing just like I expected. I expect it to grow next week as I think Word of mouth will help it out and most people probably didn’t even know it was on, which is why is grew in the 8:30 hour. They need to promote their fall shows during it like crazy to get more viewers to check their shows out. I don’t know how WLIIA would do during the regular season, but I’m sure the CW won’t let it go anytime soon, but I hope they don’t overexpose it like ABC did with Wipeout.

    Why do so many care about the CW?

  • Sam

    @Nick, yeah that is a real possibility.

  • Eric_Philly

    Hahahaha, Whose Line is now the 2nd highest rated series on the CW.

  • platypus Perry

    What is so funny about whose line being in the top tier of shows on the CW?

    Line was a solid performer for ABC for many seasons and by CW standards Especially for Summer this is great news.

    With TVD, ARROW, SUPERNATURAL and Whose Line is it Anyway bringing solid numbers, I’m hoping at least three pilots could be solid and help CW get out of the hole DAWN buried the net in for many years.

    CW/i mean theWB tried this years ago after Who’s Line Ended on ABC they did The Green Screen, same idea except they had an animated background, and it didn’t work, I watched it was pretty good, hope CW can figure out what to do with it…because they don’t have that many free slots, if it keeps up the numbers they would be crazy not to keep it in that slot, Tue 8PM is going to be tough for thme with NCIS/SHIELD/THE VOICE/NCIS/and Fox Male driven Comedies, I would keep it their and delay whatever they have for later in the season, After the time period dies down

    CW has a ton of options.

    They could air it in-season, likely putting it on Monday at 8, pushing HoD to 9 and shifting BatB to mid-season and/or Friday.

    They could premiere it in the new year or spring and fast-track a companion half-hour show.

    They could keep it in summer and really put some effort into summer.

    “but I hope they don’t overexpose it like ABC did with Wipeout.”

    Or like ABC did with “Whose Line?” Part of the original run’s downfall was caused by ABC producing too many episodes during the writer’s strike of 2001(?), resulting in some weeks with three, four episodes. The fact that there were so many episodes later produced for ABC Family, and the general lack of quality of those episodes, shows they were trying to stretch the improvisers far too thin, or use material they never should have used.

  • Oliver

    @Stephen H.

    ABC went so far to buy syndication rights and used it to fill schedule gaps. I agree overexposure killed it.

    ABC Family’s ‘new’ episodes were repurposed outtakes from the original series because reruns did so well. They were cheap.

  • Oliver

    Sorry, I meant to say ABC Family were being cheapskates.

  • RS

    I missed the first airing because the CW has had a problem with my cable company for several months now. But they resolved their differences (thankfully in time for Supernatural-Season 9 and maybe the silly pleasure of Reign). I caught WLISA on the Friday repeat, and it was wonderfully funny. I haven’t laughed so much and so out loud in a long time.
